Hardly anything of interest here - not worth a visit if you're into art.

Good diversion for an hour or so - mainly geology, history and wildlife or area. Upstairs is temporary art exhibitions - when we were there it was a weird set of animated short films from Edinburgh College of Art - surreal 30-45 minutes spent watching these!!

There was much to see packed into such a small space. I was pleased and surprised by the museum. I am a fan of ancient history, and the museum begins with fossils, leading though the first settlements of people in Inverness, and through the middle Ages through to modern history. It is a compact, yet thorough trip through time.

Interesting exhibition on the history of the Highlands; art gallery upstairs. Lots of activities for little ones but enjoyed it as a grown up too.

The staff in the museum are all happy and helpful, the artefacts are interesting and well presented - with free entry this is definitely worth a visit. Lovely wee cafe too.
